Pugsy,

Your right.....I have people tell me all the time to build full time..........but........ People dont want to pay $65-70 p/h

There are only so many whales that can afford too....and I haven't found one yet!

So....like you I build for myself and a select few friends.

You have amazing skills and I wont miss your class next year......gotta love stainless tig work.....amazing absofreeknlutly amazing.

Builders like you make me strive to build better !


 Thanks Grumpy.

 

And you better be at the next meet. wink  Its a great thing with everyone sharing their knowledge and all.

That is some fine work. How many thousand hours so far?. I always liked those ford lights but just could not find a 40 ford truck in my price range so came home with a binder. Never considered adding the lights to my front end,,would look great. I best wait till the glue on kit is available.

 A whole bunch of hours so far. If I kept track, I'd probably cry. This learning curve for metal shaping is brutal. Best wait for the glue on kit.

Got the buckets primed and assembled.

Of coarse I needed to make some stainless liners so the view thru the lense shows a nice silver/grey colour.

Thanks Mike.

The project is officially on hold as I'm about to knock down the house and rebuild.

I applied for a variance and they told me 2-4 months so I ran to the garage as soon as I got home from city hall. biggrin

I made a mistake on the spare tire well and had to make a new bottom piece. The ends needed to be curved but I tried to take a shortcut and bend straight thru on the brake and got burned.

Pugs,
I just took the time to read through the entire thread. I don't say this often or to too many people but you Sir ARE a craftsman. I appreciate the dedication, effort, time and money you have put into this car. If your skills are used only for your hobby it's a damn shame. But if that's what saves your sanity, so be it.
Wonderful job and I hope to see it in person a some point,
Wayne

Wow.

Thanks Wayne. Hopefully it will help me keep my insanity.

I've been going crazy for a whole year not touching my Baby.

If I ever finish, maybe you could see it at Megaspeed one year.

 I guess that explains why this is the first time I've seen this awesome build - I've only been here nine months!

Having seen you working your metal magic(and taught a few things) at the Hog Town Metal Meet, I am looking forward to catching up on what I've missed and following the rest of this build! Should be quite interesting!!!

I am in awe of your work - you must have quite the shop full of tools

You must kill a lot of cardboard for templates? or do you have a secret to getting perfect fit panels?

One more question - how are you cutting curves of all sorts in the heavy materials and getting such a clean edge? Ditto on the circle cuts - especially in stainless?

Is all of your work Tig, or is some of it mig?

I could write pages of questions but these are the most important to me on my own build - even if I could even get 40% as good as this my work would be so much easier

thanks

Thank you Seeker.

Yep, a lot of cardboard is correct. Much easier to adjust a piece of cardboard.

The trick to perfect panels is camera angle. Take a whole whack of pics and keep deleting the ones that make you look like a hack but save the rest, ha. wink

Outside curves are all nibbled out on the corner notcher at work. (even the 11 ga s/s) Inside curves are usually cut with the plasma cutter. They are then blended in on the belt sander. I found recently that I can use the belt sander for my cardboard templates to smooth out the curves. The better the template, the better the part.

Every weld you see is a TIG weld.

Come down to the spring meet and pick my brain some more and see the shop. My car won't be there but will be just up the street if anyone wants the nickel tour of my garage.

Outstanding work Bugsy, sheet metal work I kind of understand but the frame and especially the suspension metal work including the design is something extra ordinary! Really interesting to follow your build!

Jari sounds like a Finnish name...

Hey Pugsy! Great to see the covers pulled off and you making excellent progress on your '41. :)

Just curious, how long are the probes on your spot welder?
